of the last candidate for president, mitt romney. but the thing that struck me the most about mitt romney's speech, which was his first major public appearance since losing the presidency, of the part at the end of his speech where he talked about the iraq war. he described the iraq war as a war of liberation. we fought the iraq war to liberate the iraqi people from tyranny. the iraq war was supposedly to get saddam hussein's weapons of mass destruction and the nuclear weapons he was going to set off. we were going into that war to stop him from giving those biological and chemical weapons to the terrorists that they told us he was working with in al qaeda. that's why they told us we had to go to war in iraq. that's what they told us about why we had to have that war. none of it was true. ten years ago when we invaded iraq, we were told it was all about 9/11, that if we didn't go invade iraq, that the next attack by the same people would be a nuclear attack. a chemical weapons talk or a nuclear attack. the smoking gun would be a mushroom cloud. and that's not true. there was relationship
. >> he and netanyahu had their differences. >> we know he was sort of a supporter of romney. >> netanyahu preferred romney over obama. >> trying to influence an american election. >> there's a lot of water under the bridge. >> i think it is absolutely outrageous. >> you only tease the ones you love. >> some republicans coil at the party plans for the future. >> i know what our principles are. >> the chairman is in the hot seat. >> i am looking to get into communities in the hundreds. >> show up any time. >> i know what our principles are. >> it is what you say and do when you get there matters most to people. >> our party believes marriage is between one man and one woman. >> they haven't changed their policies. >> house republicans tomorrow vote on the ryan budget. >> notorious paul ryan budget. >> putting out yet again a budget. >> an actual budget, political manifesto or long term liability? >> we are not going to refight the past. >> our budget and your budget contrast. >> what happens next? >>> republican rebranding week continues to go, well, badly. especially if you listen to repub
when he schedules a trip to israel. mitt romney went to israel last year in a desperate attempt to exploit a republican lie, that there was some kind of difference between president obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united states. and romney delivered a speech in israel that echoed netanyahu's talking points at that time on iran. >> we should employ any and all measures to dissuade the iranian regime from its nuclear course, and it is our fervent hope that diplomatic and economic measures will do so. in the final analysis, of course, no option should be excluded. we recognize israel's right to defend itself, and that it is right for america to stand with you. >> benjamin netanyahu did everything he could to pretend that the romney position on iran was
you say to the reince priebus -- i'm sorry, to the michele bachmanns of the world, the mitt romneys of the world, to the people who are at the top of the party who everyone listens to? what do you say to them? >> i can tell you what i shared with governor romney when he was running for president. regardless of where you may personally feel, you have to take a pragmatic approach to this. haley barbour is one of the opportunities of the growth and opportunity project report. he made a very clear message before the 2012 election that purity is the enemy of victory. if one just looks at numbers as far as winning an election and making sure that you're getting out the positive message of opportunity, individual liberty, personal responsibility that you're the party of opportunity, then it does need to be inclusive. and there needs to be a reality check that there's about 11 million to 12 million illegal immigrants in this country and the majority of americans support equal workplace opportunity and the majority of americans support same-sex marriage. those are realities you have to recog
voters who supported president clinton -- sorry, president obama, over mitt romney by margin of 24 percentage points? >> i don't know that it does help or doesn't help. what i first have to get clear is what is libertarian conservatism? the two don't seem to mesh for me. you're talking about someone who is certainly against marriage equality but every libertarian, true libertarian i know wants to stay out of my life, and every social conservative i know wants to be in my life. i'm not really sure about the difference here. we're still talking about a guy who disagrees with the lions share of the civil rights legislation rulings of the '60s because he said they infringed on personal property rights. so i've got real dilemmas with rand paul and some of those issues that i think might play better with younger audiences. and i just don't see how he plays well. >> hogan, another republican senator making waves right now, another tea party darling is ted cruz of texas. in an interview over the weekend he said his biggest surprise of the senate has been the "defeatist attitude of many rep
'm told, of black voters back mitt romney. 6%, and that number seems high to me. you cannot win with number like that especially when people of color will soon be the majority in this country. also, our plans to improve communication wet voers while also cutting the number of presidential debates. why let you know what you really think. they want to move the convention earlier in the summer so they can tap into cash sooner. that's a great idea. and there is a push to close the digital media and tech gaps and all this sounds easily achievable if you listen to preebus. >> we know we have problems. we've identified them and we're implementing the solutions to fix them. to be clear, our principles are sound. we will do a better job of connecting with people, to our principles, showing how we can help every american climb the economic ladder. especially in communities we haven't been in a long time, but b what it means to be paubl. the rnc cannot and will not write off any demographic, community or region of this country. it all goes back to what our moms used to tell us. it is not j

're communicating our message to voters. if we're not, the obama campaign did an incredible job defining mitt romney. if we were the party of the rich, that was basically six months of heavy advertising by the democrats. i think it was important to reposition ourselves. to talk to voters clearly about what we stand for. >> it sounds like what we're hearing, the mention is fine for the most part. no major problems with the message. it is how we are reaching voters and how we are delivering that mention. is that a fair assessment? >> i wouldn't say, there are things we can do to talk about our policies better. there are ways we can improve our message. he didn't talk so much about policies and i thought that's a clear point that needs to be made with regard to this rollout. there are a lot of tactical changes we need to make as a party and a movement to talk to people in a more clear way. >> save immigration. we'll talk about that. one of the major recommendations from the report has to do with the primary process. the rnc wants to move toward a shorter primary season. fewer debates in the last cycle.
son? we do know that last year portman was being vetted as a possible running mate for mitt romney. he said it had no impact in choosing paul ryan over portman. second, why is it necessary to have firsthand experience with a person or situation in order to figure out how to do the right thing? is an existential experience necessary to have existential position necessary for consent? >> i think senator portman made some pretty big inroads last week, but i think it's about being decent, and respect, people don't deserve to be disrespected. >> priebus stopped short of endorsing portman's position and obviously the rnc does not. here's house speaker john boehner. >> i believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. it's what i grew up with, it's what i believe. it's what my church teaches me. and i can't imagine that position would ever change. >> you know the church taught segregation before integration. and racial justice. churches do change. and their members as well. meanwhile, hillary clinton expressed her support of marriage equality in this advocacy video. >> i support
-ended the republican primary might even have produced a different nominee. as mitt romney struggled in the weeks leading up to the michigan primary, newt gingrich and rick santorum nearly agreed to form a joint unity ticket to consolidate conservative support and topple romney. we were close, former representative bob walker, a grich ally says. grich a gingrich and an toreum couldn't agree. in the end gingrich told me too hard to negotiate. so much going on there! where do i start? >> like i said this is one of the great untold stories. >> that is hilarious. >> how would that have worked? i'm curious. >> it didn't! >> i'm asking this question seriously because -- >> that is the point. >> because back in 2008, the reason why mike huckabee got beaten by john mccain is because fred thompson and john mccain struck this same deal and made the difference in south carolina. how is this going to work? >> first important to situate ourselves to february when this happened in the gop primary. romney was really struggling and clear he had a tough time winning his home state. there was emerging anybody but

which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic setting. >> people for symbolic purposes. >> joe doesn't like paper money either. he wants to get rid of the dollar bill. >> we are into a bartering system at the scarborough house. >> you got a problem say
has a better chance of win hog may not be as pure on a conservative. >> that's what the romney situation was all about. and romney failed. >> very bold in that. >> they are. but they are congenitally unhappy. i have been covering this stuff for decades now. there are people in the republican party and in the conservative movement who are seldom happy except with certain candidates. if those candidates get nominated and have to go on and make the compromisees that politicians make. they end up enhappy with them as well. this is just part of the landscape. >> as history shows the two most extreme candidates in recent times were barry goldwater and george mcgovern and both got hammered. so i think you are right. just real quickly on the ted cruze barack obama front. isn't it interesting that both of their stories revolve around, you know, a rags to riches in america the greatest nation on earth but they both see this country so differently? think really do. don't they. look at the line of work that president obama went into. you know, it was a law professor and a community organiz
million-vote margin between mitt romney and president obama. there's also some reference to the policy there. but it's unclear exactly what that would mean or where it would go. look, this just falls within the narrative of everything we're seeing in this country. as more and more republicans, more and more democrats and the american public evolves and has evolved quite quickly on this issue. and it's time quite frankly for our elected leaders in washington to catch up with the rest of the country. >> rock on, human rights campaign president, chad griffin, thanks for coming on the show. >> pleasure to be here, thank you, alex. >>> hash tag now is the time, it could be mantra for middle east peace. we will ask the new republican's ben birnbaum about the fierce urgency of a two-state solution when he joins us live from tel aviv, just ahead. hey, our salads.

today in business week. it says mitt romney struggled in the early primaries last year, newt gingrich and rick santorum nearly agreed to form a joint unity ticket to consolidate conservative support and topple romney. but the report says the negotiations collapsed because gingrich and santorum could not agree on who would be president. business week quotes gingrich as saying, in the end it was too hard to negotiate. >>> meanwhile at an elementary school yesterday, a politically savvy young student put new jersey governor chris christy on the spot. >> i'm a third grader at the elementary school. you've done a great job here in new jersey and i was wondering if you were thinking about running for president. >> do you work for msnbc? i'm not thinking about running for president right now because i've got a job to do here. and i've got an obligation to all these folks. you can't worry about fourth grade until you finish third gras grade and i can't worry about that until i do this job. when what you just bought, just broke. or when you have a little trouble a long way from home... as an a

at the ryan plan in a little more detail. it's quite similar to what he and romney proposed. how is this different? some are calling it just the same old plan. >> well, again, i'm not sure that's true. i think the majority of americans think that the budget does need to balance at some point. the federal debt is too high. although we can disagree on some details, i think overall americans can agree, we need a budget. >> here's one detail. the ryan budget is dependent on repealing obama care which is all about guaranteed not to happen. so how realistic is it, congressman, that a budget is put out there that can never actually be implemented. >> it's increasingly apparent. it's not affordable. the affordable care act is basically costing too much. premiums going up too fast and i think we should dial them back or delay implementation. >> so do you agree that obama care is not going to be repealed? your jouft looking for an amendment to that? >> well, i have to tell you there's no question that implementation is not going to occur on time. in fact, one of the career folks over at hs

't like. prime minister netanyahu right of center, supported romney in the last presidential election, has at times stopped at president obama, my language, doesn't get it. both of these guys just won elections. they are in the words of a top american official the other day, stuck with each other. and it's very crystal clear today, both of them have decided to try to turn a new page. are they going to be best friends, i think not. but are they going to be better friends? today it appeared they're going to at least try at that. and that makes a difference. when you're dealing with the iran nuclear crisis, the syria civil crisis, the question of whether you can get the palestinians and the israelis back on the table. if they like each other a bit more, it helps when things get difficult. and that's a difficult list. >> people assume that iran may be overshadowing this trip, in a sense, syria has overtaken even iran because of the suggestion that chemical weapons have been used, both sides trying to blame the other side. what do we really know about what may have happened here? >> reporter: n
romney has not paid taxes for ten years, he's got a record of this slander and these lies. >> happy wednesday, sean. look, this is a majority leader in the senate that's gotten caught lying many times and when the marine corps says that what he is saying is unsubstantiated, they're saying he's lying again. harry reid has made a habit of being dishonest on the floor of the senate and what he is trying to do is just cover the president's butt on sequester. the president himself started to cover his own butt by playing such silly games as shutting the white house tours down. this is just another version of that. remember, donald trump offered to pay for all those white house tours. >> sean: whoa, whoa, whoa. >> and the president didn't take him up on it. >> sean: and wait a minute, i offered to pay for a week after eric biology golling got start started. by the way, it's off the table, i pay enough in taxes. >> you and bill maher. >> sean: yeah, he's even sick of paying taxes and california democrats are losing him. gee, time to wake up, bill. but here is my point: these democrats get

of the economy. i mean, just for the sake of argument, mitt romney, all right, maybe not the best candidate but, still, a tremendous change he was offering, the governor was offering. tremendous change. people rejected that. and wanted this malaise and this giant colossus spending. maybe this is off othe table forever. maybe the entitlement state which mrs. clinton will embrace is the wave of the future. >> well, bill, look at one other issue that hasn't been directly mentioned and that's obama care. obama care remains unpopular. >> bill: absolutely. >> distinct possibility it will become even more so. she was for major healthcare reform. presumably she was supporter of obama care although as secretary of state she didn't speak about it is she going to repudiate obama care which may still be beloved by democrats but strongly disliked by a huge segment of the country. that's an issue that could hamstring any democrat running in 2016. so there is a lot out there a lot logical depend on the rules results. if the policy results are not so good. i'm going out on a limb here because she gets the demo
